This is to ask whether you are willing to take on a ‘pro child‘ stance and help families locally while supporting Child Rights in Brussels. Here’s our wish list:
1. on behalf of foreign nationals, will you ensure consular visits, i.e. allow foreign children to be visited by the representatives of their embassies and consulates – to speak in their native language? This would ensure the enforcement of
- the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations;
- and Article 10 of the EU Convention on Human Rights, i.e. the right to free expression in your native language;
2. in local councils, will you stop forced adoptions?
- this would ensure that family judges in the UK eventually will stop dispensing with parental consent ‘in the best interest of the child’ – i.e. exert not only a trauma on the child but also the birth parents and whole family who have not committed any crime;
- the meeting on 19 March 2014 illustrates the issues vividly;
- will you ensure that MEPs investigate this child-snatching scandal, as The Telegraph published after the meeting?
- Latvian Tatjana Zdanoka MEP has been the leading light to get the special meeting together for our ‘pilgrimage’ to Brussels on 19 March 2014; she is in Brussels what John Hemming MP is in London: a passionate advocate to Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent.
4. Please note Early Day Motion 950 that Lib Dem John Hemming MP put down regarding Deaths of Children from Child Abuse and Child Neglect in England:
That this House notes that prosecutions for manslaughter and murder as a result of a child death in 2011 were 16 and in 2012 were 19, but in 2013 were 34; further notes that this would imply an increase in the number of child deaths from child abuse and neglect; further notes that Ofsted hold records of significant incident notifications as a result of deaths of children suspected to have occurred as a result of child abuse and neglect and that Ofsted did until 2012 provide lists of those notifications to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley for his research and analysis; further notes, however, that Ofsted are now refusing to provide that information either through freedom of information or through a parliamentary question; further notes the thesis of the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley that the wrong children are taken into care as a consequence of the concentration on removing young babies from their mothers and the difficulty of assessing risk at birth given that risk factors change later in life; further notes that in 2010 1,400 babies under one month were taken into care, but in 2013 that figure was 2,013, a 45 per cent increase; recognises that the statistics are aligned with the thesis that more children are dying as a result of child abuse and neglect as a consequence of the concentration on younger children; and believes that this issue should be reviewed urgently.
